Katie Holmes admitted in the newest issue of Women’s Health that she sometimes looks back on the past wishing it would come back. Her childhood was a time much simpler without smartphones and neverending social media feedback criticizing a person’s every single move.
The 39-year-old reminisced about the time when cameras were only used for special events including holidays, birthdays, and vacations. In the April issue of Women’s Health, the mother of Suri, 11, with her ex, Tom Cruise, admitted she sometimes falls prey to Instagram envy.
Using an example of one woman who took her child to Morocco, Katie asked why she never took her kid to the Northern-African country. According to the actress, she is old-fashioned and can admit it.
Holmes doesn’t even own a kindle. She added that she feels more intuned with the author when she has the book directly in her hand. There is something missing from the spirit of our culture when technological advancements have taken over the way we conduct ourselves.
Fortunately, for Katie, she had great experiences growing up when a person could be much closer to the art. The Batman Begins alum stated she looks up to her mother who would frequently take her to museums. For that reason, Katie said she takes a lot of inspiration from that point in her life.
Furthermore, Holmes praised her mother’s artisan and craftsman skills; she explained her mom could make pretty much anything, including curtains, pillows, sweaters, and everything in between.
She explained that she took it for granted as a child, “but as I’ve gotten older, I see the poetry in that.”
As for Katie’s newest film, The Doorman, she explained how and why she got jacked. The movie star admitted it wasn’t just for the movie, it was for her daughter as well. Holmes emphasized the importance of working out and eating right; it’s the only way to get the body of your dreams.
